Earlier today, AMD held its press conference at CES 2020 in Las Vegas, where the company unveiled its plans for 2020, along with a number of new products.
As usual, the company had a surprise. Just before the show ended, AMD Ceo Dr. Lisa Su announced the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, a 64-core 128-thread desktop processor that’s designed to deliver an unprecedented level of performance for creators.
Threadripper 3990X will run on the TRX40 platform which offers Multi-GPU support, Quad-Channel DDR4 memory support, PCIe 4.0 connectivity, and more. It boasts a base clock of 2.9GHz and a boost clock of up to 4.3GHz. Like its 3000 series siblings, it’s built on a 7nm process, utilizing the very capable, yet highly efficient Zen2 cores. This one has a TDP of 280W.
So of course, you want it, right? AMD says the processor is set to hit shelves on February 7, 2020, for $3990. For more details, click here.
